Police Officer Chris Goodell was killed when his patrol car was struck by a tractor trailer on Route 17, near Bergen Avenue, shortly before 1:30 am.

Officer Goodell was parked on the shoulder of Route 17, running radar, when the semi swerved onto to the shoulder and collided with the back of the patrol car. The patrol car was then pushed into a retaining wall.

An off duty deputy from out of state was the first to arrive at the collision and immediately began providing aid to Officer Goodell.

Officer Goodell was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the Waldwick Police Department for five years. He is survived by his fiancee.

Happy 35th. Birthday in Heaven, Christopher. It is so hard to believe you are no longer here to celebrate with us. We miss you more and more – as the months turns into years. It doesn’t seem possible that this is your third birthday that you are in Heaven. The love we shared with you helps to keep us strong, but the emptiness can never be filled. You are and always will be our Hero. Love and miss you so much, sweet Angel. Forever in Our Hearts #38. Your Loving Family
